UFC welterweight champion Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley will defend his strap for the fourth time against undefeated English prospect Darren ‘The Gorilla’ Till at UFC 228 in September.
Till, 25, in a backstage interview at UFC 227, said monetary benefits coming from becoming a champ won’t matter as much as the legacy coming from it will.
“I’m not in this to make money, be a champion, leave. I’m in this for people to say at the end of it, ‘You were the greatest.’ That’s my only mentality. F—k money, f—k everything else.”
Till claims even personal responsibilities related to his wife and daughter have taken a backseat.
“You can’t have worries outside of this game,” Till said. “I’ve got a girlfriend who’s nearly seven months pregnant. I don’t really care. I’ve got a daughter in Brazil right now who I haven’t seen for one year. I don’t really care. I just care about legacy and greatness. That’s what I’m in this for.”
